Water quota of Rustenburg’s platinum mines restricted

THE water supply to Rustenburg’s platinum mines has been restricted to half of their usual quota, the Department of Water Affairs said on Thursday, although an Impala Platinum spokesman has denied this.

The announcement came a day after North West Premier Thandi Modise declared the entire province a drought-stricken area in terms of the Disaster Management Act, calling into action a drought-response task team comprising the departments of local government and traditional affairs, agriculture and rural development, water affairs, agriculture forestry and fisheries, and social development, municipalities and organised agriculture.

Department of Water Affairs spokeswoman Linda Page said the restrictions, imposed by the municipality and Rand Water, extended to the town, where the filling of swimming pools and the watering of gardens had been forbidden.

The water supply to the town’s central business district would also be restricted “in order to eliminate any inefficient usage of water”.

All residents in the Rustenburg area would be allowed to reuse greywater (bath, shower, hand basin and laundry water) to irrigate gardens.
